How do we know if the bible was even intended to be written as non fiction?

For all we know, the authors could have been deliberately writing fiction.

Basically, how to people know the intention of the authors?

The Steven King of the time.

Had that thought many years ago.

That's the trick, you see?

The bible is wide open to interpretation, whoever is the best public speaker can convince a lot of people of his interpretation and can acquire wealth, fame and sex using their public oratory skills.

The book says you must eschew evidence or reason, these are things brought about from the devil or the carnal mind.

The bible sets up the mark, the preacher/priest executes the confidence trick on the mark. The bible even calls them sheep!

RE: The Bible
If by "bible" - you're referring to the "King James Version" - or any of it's derivatives, you should bear in mind that this is not some transcription of "God's dictaphone machine" - that it's adherents would like you to believe.

It's a knock-togethered bit of dogma put together in order for the king of England to loosen the hold of the Catholic church over his reign.

In today's parlance -- it's a cut and paste job by a guy with an agenda.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

LOL... you're not asking for much, are you????


The differences of the KJV and earlier versions really aren't all that important in themselves - it's sort of like arguing if Batman could kick Aquaman's ass.

What IS important - is that this "holy book" - was written by men, edited by men, re-edited by men, fold, spindled and mutilated by men --- and not "divinely inspired" as it's adherents would like everyone to believe.

I'd argue that scripture is divinely inspired as much as anything can be. Specifically, it is a certain type of insanity that produces scripture - oh, in case you missed it, Imma prophet, so of course I've got opinions in that area. Thumbsup

Mandatory. Anyone who claims to be a prophet and denies insanity is a false prophet. Thumbsup

RE: The Bible
Best kind of prophet --

A "for profit prophet".

A "non-profit prophet" being a guy who's only right once in a while, thus unworthy of a paycheck.
